“Can't wait to return”
Reviewed 5 February 2010

My wife and I have today returned back from a weeks holiday in Fuengirola on the Costa Del Sol, staying at the Florida Spa Hotel. Our experience of this hotel can only be described “Mega Fantastic” . “Check-in” and “Check-out” was very friendly and completed swiftly and efficiently, the room we had was on the second floor with sea view, the room was absolutely spotless, a safe and fridge were provided as standard and free of any charge, as were a number of basic toiletry items. The maid service cleaned the room daily. Linen and towels were changed as and when you wanted. The restaurant was very good with a good selection of international and well cooked foods. Service was buffet style, the dinning room staff (under the control of the manager Maria) were friendly, good at their jobs and all spoke English, the only downer was that the road outside the hotel was very narrow so the coach had to drop you off and pick you up from the main road some 70 yards away. I can not speak highly enough about this hotel and I will certainly be returning next Holiday..

Following all the reviews on this hotel are expectations were high and we were not disappointed.
The hotel was spotlessly clean the staff were brilliant and could not do enough for you and always with a smile.
The buffet breakfast was a close to a full English as I have ever had in Spain and the choices were endless.
Evening meal was a dream so much to choose from with a fresh roast every night, just be prepared to pile a few pounds on because you want to eat it all.
This hotel is rated a 4 star+ and I feel this is the only hotel I have ever stayed in that truly deserves it's rating.
Because it was January the hotel was full of the older generation but this was fine by us, but no children allowed, which is great for a nice quiet relaxing break.
The spa pools are free and are superb 40'c like a giant bath.
On the whole I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Well done the Florida spa.......

We went for 2 weeks on a Thomson's Platinum Holiday for only £330 each which included taxi transfers and Thomson's insurance. Staff were great, a special mention to Maria in the restaurant who went that extra mile and also Pedro and Monica on reception. Sadly, the weather was appalling, rain day after day and so were confined to the hotel probably more than usual. The rooms had a kettle with tea, coffee and milk provided plus they were topped up daily. We really enjoyed the food, probably too much..... You would have to be very fussy not to overeat. Our only niggles were the annoying musak in the lifts and incredibly loud tannoy announcements in the evening which were only missing the Hi Di Hi preamble. Would we return? Like a shot!

the hotel Florida was one of the best hotels we have stayed in. The hotel was very clean and excellent value,the fridge and safe deposit box were free,there was tea and ciffee making facilities which were kept topped up daily. The room was very comfortable,the bathroom was spotless with a walk in shower,but no bath, bath gel and shampoo supplied and topped up daily.The coaches could not stop in front of the hotel as the entrance was on the side and the road too narrow but it was a two minute walk to the entrance so not a problem. The area was flat and easy to get around even if you are not too steady on your feet. The indoor pool and hydro spa were excellent and free. There was a charge for the sauna but we did not use it so I don't know the price. We didn't travel far as I can't walk far but there was a bar opposite the hotel and it was warm enough to sit outside in the evening(in November) There were lots of restaurants within easy reach, the beach and marina were a few minutes over the road.

Just returned from a 3 night stay which included Christmas Gala Dinner. The hotel is very nice and the staff are the best I've seen in a hotel of this standard. The hotel caters very much for the British holiday maker and the local Spanish ballroom dancers at this time of year.
If you are a smoker you have a bar to smoke in.
The food is quite good. though have had better in other 4* hotels and the Gala dinner was not special at all.
Under ground parking is easy and cheap at 6€ per night.
The price of drinks is average for hotels.
All in all I would recommend this hotel and would like to stay here in summer.

just got back from a week in this hotel, the only word that springs to mind is perfect.
hotel staff, food,,rooms, location, were all fantastic.
the only thing i could find fault with was the entertainment as it was geared towards the spanish locals rather than holiday makers.
apart from that it was perfect.
